Economics-Accounting Major

The Accounting Program at Claremont McKenna College offers a unique opportunity to learn accounting within a liberal arts setting. Economics/Accounting is a separate major within the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance, offering the breadth of courses necessary to prepare students with the technical skills to sit for the CPA exam. Our commitment to broad educational goals and our special relationship with the economics and finance faculties at CMC, provide opportunities for our students to succeed not only in accounting but in a variety of professions including consulting and financial advisory services.

The Accounting Program requires courses in both economics and accounting. In addition, our program emphasizes analytical, communication, and interpersonal skills. In keeping with the broader aims of a liberal arts education, our students are encouraged to combine study in Economics/Accounting with other areas of study for a dual or double major.
